LATEST NEWSFLASH 

NEW – Exciting news our branch has been selected to pilot the THE YOUNG EQUESTRIAN CLUB within our Branch. Young Equestrians is a scheme created by Hoof, The British Equestrian Federation legacy programme, in collaboration with the Pony Club aimed at 13-18 year olds. Thanks to Sport Englands funding we are given virtual tools to help establish the club and marketing materials.It provides an extra social element for the teenagers to spend more time with their friends, developing life skills, generally having fun and hopefully trying new activities. It will also give older members a chance to be more involved and an opportunity to voice their ideas. Then we will try to arrange appropriate events in the holidays depending on what the Young Equestrians want.The only requirement is that the teenagers register (no fee) and each week record on the online portal their riding sessions (at home, rallies, shows etc, achievements and any skills gained). This scheme also works well with YELA as volunteering hours can be recorded.

We launched  this scheme in Half Term on Sunday 15 February and had some great feedback.See new page The Young Equestrian Club for more details.
